    Mickey Rourke Supports Johnny Depp, Calls Amber Heard A “Gold Digger”

    Mickey Rourke has an interesting take on Amber Heard’s life. The American actor was also a professional boxer. His personal life has also gathered much media attention as ‘The Pledge‘ actor was arrested on suspicion of spousal abuse. But, the charges were later dropped.

    In a recent interview, the star talked about his friendship with Johnny Depp. He also at one point said that Amber Heard was only after Johnny Depp’s money in the exes’ defamation trial.

    The ‘Sin City‘ actor said “[I’ve known] Johnny for many years, but I don’t really know him intimately,” on ‘Piers Morgan Uncensored‘. “All I could say is, I was in a situation one time where I got blamed for something that I didn’t do. It cost me movie jobs for several years, and it caused me a bad reputation.”

    Rourke may have been referring to incidents with his model ex-wife Carré Otis. She claimed that he was abusive and had threatened to kill himself if she did not marry him. They were married from 1991 to 1999.

    Finally, the truth came out, but the truth came out after I lost movies and I lost jobs, and so I felt bad for somebody that is trying to get chopped down by some gold digger,” the 69-year-old continued, referring to Depp and Heard.

    When Morgan asked whether Rourke believes Heard is a gold digger, the actor replied, “Abso-f–king-lutely. Absolutely.

    The Hollywood actor had filed a $50 million defamation lawsuit against Heard in 2019. This was after she wrote an op-ed for the Washington Post about surviving domestic violence. She countersued him for $100 million in 2020.

    While the actress did not name Depp, the ‘Pirates of the Caribbean‘ star alleged that his ex-wife’s allegations affected his career. This was done in an attempt to score a large divorce settlement. The couple was married from 2015 to 2017,

    In June, Depp’s name was cleared when he won the case. The ‘Alice in Wonderland‘ star was awarded $10 million in compensatory damages and an additional $5 million. Heard had a minor victory in her countersuit, with the jury awarding her $2 million in compensatory damages but $0 in punitive damages. The ‘Aquaman‘ actress has since asked the judge to reject the jury’s verdict.
